Health Tip: Safer Sleep for Baby
Here's what's recommended

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Exactly what do worried parents need to do to keep baby safer while the infant is asleep?

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends:

  • Always put baby to sleep on the back, until baby turns a year old. If baby rolls over, you don't need to keep flipping the infant back. Just keep the crib clear of any objects, including pillows, bumper pads, toys and blankets.
  • If baby falls asleep in a swing, or car seat, transfer baby to the crib as soon as possible.
  • Make sure baby's crib mattress is firm.
  • Don't let baby sleep in your bed. But for at least the first six months, put baby's crib in your bedroom.
  • Never let baby sleep on a couch or chair.
  • If you swaddle baby, make sure it's not too tight. Stop swaddling when baby tries to roll over.
